Publisher's Summary

"Sexy heroes, strong heroines, intelligent plots, enchanting love stories...Grace Burrowes's romances have them all." (Mary Balogh)

A man with many talents.

As a captain in the army, Colin MacHugh led men, fixed what was broken, and fought hard. Now that he's a titled gentleman, he's still fighting - this time to keep his bachelorhood safe from all the marriage-minded debutantes. Then he meets the intriguing Miss Anwen Windham, whose demure nature masks a bonfire waiting to roar to life. When she asks for his help to raise money for the local orphanage, he's happy to oblige.

Anwen is amazed at how quickly Lord Colin takes in hand a pack of rambunctious orphan boys. Amazed at how he actually listens to her ideas. Amazed at the thrill she gets from the rumble of his Scottish burr and the heat of his touch. But not everyone enjoys the success of an upstart. And Colin has enemies who will stop at nothing to ruin him and anybody he holds dear.

Bob @ Platypire Reviews

Okay, first of all, the disclosure. I was sent a copy of this book to read and review, but it didn't happen. I may or may not have taken my beautiful book on a camping trip, and forgot it where we stash our gear. So, I bought myself an audible version. And that, my friends, was a great decision!

This book is ADORABLE. I had a girl crush on Anwen just a few pages in. I love her sass! She's a feisty character who knows just how to put men in their place. All of the characters were really well written, from the boys to Win, whom I love to hate. The overbearing siblings, the familial connections; there were all great. The Headmaster was a bit of an enigma; I kind of wanted to hate him, but near the end he redeemed himself a bit. Still wanna smack him, though. Rosalyn, too, for that matter...

The flow was good too. While it could have been easily overwhelmed by all the different story lines twisting and twining together, the author did a great job of keeping everything clear. The drama was intriguing without being too much, and the sex scenes were just spicy enough before fading to black

As to the narration: fabulous! James Langton did a great job with his. His voice is pleasant, his tempo steady, and he did wonderful with the accents and different voices for characters. He fit the story very well.
If you enjoy historical romance and some Scottish dirty talk, I suggest you check this one out!

Another enjoyable book by prolific Grace Burrowes

What did you love best about Too Scot to Handle?

The continuation of the ongoing saga of the multitude of Morelands, the humor, the excellent reader, and the horrid secondary characters. I have listened to or read most of the author's books and must confess that they sometimes blend together. Too Scot to Handle could easily stand on its own.

Classic outsider story

Love the hero feeling like a fish out of water and the difficulties caused by "friends" and following the herd. The children in this one act like real children - bratty bad behavior, acting out when treated unfairly and all. Anyone who's ever had to sit on a charity committee, or any kind of committee, will completely relate to our heroine's dilemma.

How DOES one learn to be a fashionable insider if suddenly thrust into that position? Trying to raise funds when half the people involved are either in it for publicity or paid bureaucrats...I have SO been there for some of the situations.

The more this author writes, the more I'm hooked. Her heroes solve problems for real, not just by throwing money at them. And the heroines don't sit around waiting to be rescued. Awesome!

Narrator is now my ideal as he makes the men sound so reasonable. Thank you James Langton for another "I got lost in the story, what time is it?" narration.

Not a great narrator.

I didn't care for the narrator his words were not always clear and the pitch up and down. I would have liked to see the words to follow along.
